Gay Games/Olympics

Has anyone heard about this?

Just did a quick search to see if anything would be going on in Paris during my travel dates 8/8-8/15 and "Gay Games" kept coming up.

From a search on their website, looks like its similar to the olympics and is every 4 years in a different major city. I can't seem to find much info on it though. They have general admission tickets for a very reasonable price for some of the events. Is this worth checking out? Is the quality of the athletes legit or is this more a just for fun thing? How far outside of the city is this? Is it popular? Any info would be appreciated.

Yes, Orlando was in the running for the 2018 games, but I think they think it's too hot in Florida for them in the Summer.

I attended some events when it was in Cleveland in 2014. Some sports are more competitive than others, but it was all good fun.
